Getting Excited

My sweet fiance' is so good to buy me magazines. He will usually get a copy of my all time favorite, People . (He likes to read it too!) A couple of weeks ago he bought me an Alabama Weddings magazine. I love this one!!! It has really cute ideas and ads. While thumbing through it one night before bed, I came across an advertisement for a bridal boutique in Troy called Seraphim. The dresses in their ad were darling. I told myself I would have to make a special trip there in the future, but didn't think about it again until this afternoon. I had graduate school tonight, and had some time to kill before class. I decided to drive around Troy to see what was new. So much has changed since I graduated in 2003. As I was driving down South Brundidge Street, a cute little house caught my eye. Low and behold, it was Seraphim Bridal Boutique!! I whipped the Honda in the parking lot, and excitedly tried to call Britton to meet me there. Unfortunately she didn't answer, so I ventured in all by myself. The owner and her daughters were soooo sweet and helpful. They carry a line of bridesmaids dresses by DeRie. These dresses are made in Winfield, Alabama. I don't know about you, but I absolutely fell in love with them!! They also make flower girl dresses and ring bearer outfits. Check out the web-sites and the pictures I posted below. They're a little pricey, but perfect for a casual, fall wedding!

On another note.....remember that favor I mentioned in an earlier blog. Well, to those of you that are locals, I am hostessing a Taste of Home Entertaining party next Tuesday night. I am trying to get up enough of the beverage servers (pictured above) to use for the wedding. So far my mother has one, Sabrina has one, and my friend Lisa has one. If I have at least $750 in sales at my party, I get to purchase one for $25. They cost $99 in the catalog. This company has some really great items, and not all of them are that expensive!! If you like to entertain, you should definitely come by and check out the products.
Date: Tuesday, June 3rd
Time: 6:00 PM
Place: My parents home
Hope you can all come!!!

  4. Hey,
    You're blog looks great. Sorry, I missed the party Tuesday. One of my classes is a 5 week mini-session and I've been working every night trying to stay on top of all the work. I heard you had a really good party, even if Erin drove u nuts.

    I came with Heather today to her doctor's appt. and we we're just talking and she was asking about the wedding and everything, and the lady sitting behind us asked if we were talking about Mandi Clark. I told hear yes we were. She said, "I'm her aunt." How funny, your Aunt Christie is here and says hello. We looked at your blog together. It's a small world!!
